About LRRB Investigation 828
- The existing version of MnPAVE was calibrated to match the existing R-Value design procedure and typical state highway pavement structures. Estimates of the seasonal variation in soil and aggregate base material properties were based primarily on studies done at a single location. This study will produce a version of MnPAVE that focuses on local road structures and seasonal variations in material properties, specifically during the Spring Thaw period. MnPAVE will also be calibrated to local road performance data. The results of this research can also be implemented in the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide developed for NCHRP.
